Sergeant Watson was shot and killed with his own weapon after arresting a man for selling an out-of-state newspaper without a license. As he drove the man to the police station he was attacked and the suspect was able to gain control of his service weapon and shot him four times. The suspect and another man had been told to leave town the week before when they were caught selling the same newspaper.
